I have been extremely busy working on the farm. I have a concentrated effort to build Solt/Sult/Salts families descending from Henrich Zoll of 1700's Pennsylvania and now bringing Y-dna for that group together with 3 testers. This will help me to get a [van Solt / van Soldt] to finally give a Y-dna sample hopefully by September. As for George Soule I have nothing new at this time, but slowly weaving my way through many variant spellings of the family ALIAS "van den Kayart" = Keyaert, Keijaerts, Keyert, Caeyert, Kaert, etc, which also has another alias Coelhaes, Coolhaes, Koolhaas. I am also looking at old records the George may have been recorded under his father as a patriname such Willems. Williams, Johnson, Jansen, Jans etc. My main mission now is tp present a case for my cousins to help submit a Ydna sample to resolve any connection. I have read nothing new on G Soule research in last 4 months.

I have followed Armando Framarini's discussions surrounding George Soule's parentage with interest.  I know there has been continued research by Louise Walsh Throop and Caleb Johnson.  Does Armando have anything new to report? (I check in occasionally hoping for another thread of information!)

hey everyone, I'm pretty new to this. My mother's maiden name is Soules. Her father told me it actually use to be soule. I'm wondering if this is the same soule family? I am going to try to get more information from him

Possible misrecording of SOLT, but also possible the name transformed in spelling to Sole/Soule.

Clayton: I find your posting on the Basques and French Pyrenees interesting.

I use to get regular e-mails (in English) from a Basques studies department of a western U.S. university. It was concerned with the Basque language, customs, and history; both in America and the Pyrenees  This flowed from over a century ago when many Basque sheep herders settled in the American West, and fishermen near San Francisco (unless I confuse them with the Portuguese there).

My ancestor, French marine aide Maj. Pierre Gabriel de Juzan (also Jussan) of Mobile, Alabama, was killed in combat against Chickasaws in the 1730's First Battle of Ackia, Tupelo, Mississippi Military District. His kinsman, Canadian marines Capt. Antoine de Tonty, and aide Maj. Charles Pierre de Liette, were killed in the Second Battle of Ackia.

Juzan's mother was Mme. Michelle de Liette de Juzan "of the King's cabins", Versailles, France. Her other sons were one who was a marine supply officer at Bayonne (bad eyes? Old Navy joke) and the other who was Count Pontchartrain's courier to the King.

His son "Don Pedro" was, Francois Pierre Gabriel de Juzan, His Spanish Majesty's Indian Commissioner to Alabama, and DAR ally Patriot. Don Pedro ran Spanish service agents amongst the Indians against British agents amongst the Indians. His son, Choctaw chief, Capt. Peter Juzan, inn keeper, Juzan Lake, Mississippi, in the 1815 Battle of New Orleans, led 52 Choctaws from the swamp against the British right flank ("...powdered the alligator's behinds. Fired! But the British kepta-com'n...").

The Juzan name, according to the Basque Studies Center; is not a Basque name, though the Juzans are from the French Pyrenees. There is a village there of Louvie-Juzan; supposedly "juzan" means "a small village on the side of a hill", but I know not in which language?

Whilst "Don Pedro" spoke French, Spanish, and at least, likely Indian "trade language" (mish-mash of adjoining tribes key words, and Spanish/French/English key trade words; our Creek chief Samuel 'Sam" Moniac, Sr., who 1790 NYC signed the peace treaty with President Washington; allegedly taught Gen. Jackson under whom Moniac served as a Creek nation ally; to use the Creek term which sounded like "OK", and pretty-much means what it does today. Over a decade ago, I was in Paris with Cuban/French Juzan kin (the late Col. Pierre Juzan was once head of French airline security?), when some Parisians were speaking to them in French, and kept saying "OK", frequently. I chuckled; bet they did know the were speaking Creek? Creek, is "Greek" to them?);  prior to Maj. Juzan bringing his French marine company via Haiti, to Mobile, Alabama, he had been a French marine Lt. on the Swiss border.

If there Lt. de Juzan spoke fluent Swiss; this brings to mind a hunch? The 'French' Juzan, Jussan name may have originally been Swiss Jussen, Jussian, or German Je<Ü>sien? This may be less than far-fetched; as our Adam Hollinger of 1750's Hollinger's Island, off Mobile, descended from 1649 Irish militia Capt. Ruprecht Robert Hollinger, who came to Ireland from Switzerland, where he was born 1590 at Waldshist.

Lastly let me at to the early American, French Juzan, French & Indian Juzan heritage, our early Mobile French, Indian, African American Juzangkin. The added 'g' i in Don Pedro's son, Charles Juzan's (1800?) will in which he provides for both, but distinguishes between within and without wedlock Indian families. The w/o branch in time, added our later African American blood "Juzang" cousins.

Today I came across the marriage of a John Vonssell and a Mary Scarle in the parish of St Marylebone in Westminster in April if 1686. After looking at the entry on, I sent them a correction notice to change the name to John Vonssoll and Mary Searle. Could this be a descendant of a brother of George Soule? Maybe a van Solt/van Soldt? or both? Also the family name  of SEARLE is some how changed from Salls/Saule! Curios if anyone knows of this union?
